Your ol' reliable hM2 is a might) talented chunk of iron, what with
the way it can be used with different mounts. with a switch of parts
here and a change of parts there.
If it's going to live up to its reputation,- though, it needs some help
- the preventive maintenance kind from )ou. Knowing what to
look for is half the job .getting things fixed that need fixing is the
other half. Read on and you'll see what to look for. The things that're
in bohl green I. pe are what you want to tend to now -or even sooner.
Because the .50-cal has different uses, one set of components the
backplate group, f'rinstance won't be the same for all the M2's. So
pick out the group )ou have in your weapon and work from there.
While you'ree giving your shooting' iron the once-over, look for din,
rust and the like. And also look for loose rivets, which is something
you don't want your gun to have.
Now, on with the inspection.

KNOW YOUR PUBS
You also want to take a close look at your other tools and equipment now and
again-items like cleaning rods and gun covers-to make sure they're not two
hoots and a holler from being in such bad shape that they can't be used again.
No marrer what publications you might have-like TM 9-2320-224-25P
(Dec 64) for the MI 14and M114A1 armored command and reconnaissance
carrier--there're three others that you can also use. These are FM 23-65 (Dec
55) with Ch 1 (22 May 56) and Ch 2 (10 Mar 59) ... LO 9-1000-228-12(18
May66) ... and TB 9-1005-213-10/1 (27 Mar 64). The TB tells you what M2
.50-cal guns go with what mounts.
And don't forget your PLL-TM 9-2300-223-20P (28 Jul 65)-when you
have a weapon that's issued with tank-automotive equipment. And TM 9-1005-
213-12P (14 Jan 64) and change I (17 Mar 64) is for you if your shooter's a
separate TOE line item.
RESCINDED MODIFICATIONS sTOP
There seems to be just a little bit of confusion about aircraft modifications
that have not been applied to our aircraft. The old TM-I's, TO's, TB's and
MWO's authorizing them have long since been canceled.
Can you tell me how to maintain an up-to-date DA Form 2408-5 on this age-
old problem? Sgt R. P. K.
Dear Sergeant R. P. K.,
It's true that some pubs were canceled before all the aircraft were modified.
In some cases, the aircraft configuration change was done, in fact, by the
replacement of old parts with new parts.
In other cases the modification was not done, but it is not legal to apply a
canceled modification. You may be able to get an exception, tho, if you can
justify incorporating the modification on the basis thatwithout it (as an example)
you have a safety-of-flight hazard.
In such a case your request should go to:
Ordinarily, tho, here's the way you
should fill out the DA Form 2408-5 on
a rescinded modification -
On the left side, enter the usual info.
On the right side of the form enter
Rescinded by DA Cir 310-XX (and the
date) that's all there is to it.
A rescinded modification is not re-
quired to be done and therefore does
not have any adverse effect on the
materiel readiness status of your birds.

you guessed it the ring broke, the
hoist flipped and the transmission ended
up in a heap!!

Next, don't overload the hoist on a
transmission lift or the hoist will take
it on the chin. You have to keep a steady
hand pull on the last bolt to come out
(the link bolt) as the hoist begins to

take the load. Cranking the hoist past
the bolt release point means you're try-
ing to lift the whole kit and caboodle.
So, when a mechanic kept cranking
on the hoist recently, something had to
give. A pulley broke as it's supposed
to when you try to lift more than the
hoist capacity of 600 pounds. 'Course
this prevented breakage to a more costly
bird pArt. One of the mounting brackets
also let go.

Finally, remember that lifting a

To swing the hoist be sure the area
is clear and, again, use both hands on
the pivoting bar.
Anytime you use more than hand pressure to put a spark plug into a jug
you can wind up with an under-torqued plug and, after awhile, a loose plug
.. 'taint a healthy situation!!
That's what happened to our Beaver (U-6) when carbon hardened in the
brass spark plug insert. Although the torque wrench read right the carbon pre-
vented the plug from getting tightened enough. So, we made up a little clean-
ing tool that works like.a charm on solid inserts. Of course, the tool's not used
on heli-coil inserts because you might damage the threads or loosen the insert.
We took a shot 18-mm plug and cut 6 grooves in it--cutting thru the first
thread and decreasing the depth to zero half-way up the threaded barrel.
Now, when a plug doesn't go into the cylinder with hand pressure we reach
for this gem, put a little grease on it and screw it into the insert one turn
in back off a half turn one turn in. ... The tool picks up the carbon and
deposits it in the grooves.
With a clean insert you get a free-running plug and the right torque,

SSHOT 18-MM PLUG
(Ed Note Looks like a good tap, especially if you're in the boonies and you
don't have the tap in your spark plug cleaning kit handy. Just be sure you
set the piston at top dead center and take out the opposite spark plug. Then you
can use compressed air to blow out carbon that might have fallen into the

True, the call number is taken from

is not the serial number and there has
been a lot of rejected info to prove
What happens when a form goes

Every member of Indian tribe
Whirlybird knows that Big Chief
Chinook (number 47 in CH tribe) car-
ries a heap of forked lightning in his
cargo hook like static electricity.
Big Chief turns it loose on palefaces
when they try hitch-up job at round-up
time for downed birds or cargo. Bird
watcher looks like he's doing snake
dance while full of "kick-a-poo" juice
when he touches hook in belly of
Chinook. He should have look-see into
recovery and evacuation of Army air-
craft, TM 55-413 (19 Apr 66).
This paleface pub has sure-fire cure
for this shocking development. The
answer is a discharge probe an in-
sulated brass rod shaped like a shep-
herd's staff at one end and joined by a
length of metallic braid to a ground
rod at the other.
When ready for a hook-up, ground
crewman drives rod into earth like
tepee pole. Then he takes probe and
catches cargo hook.
When contact is made, Big Chief's
pent-up power now flies like arrow
thru probe into the ground.
No static .. no shock.
No spark to ignite spilled fuel .
no smoke signal!
With probe, ground crewman
steadies the cargo hook so other ground
types can safely grab the cargo hook
to finish the hitch-up.
(TYPE GP-81 Zt
'Course if the probeman loses contact
with the cargo hook, he must regain it
before the others touch the hook with
their hands otherwise zowie!
So-o-o make straight tracks to tepee
shack. Make with tools and hardware
quick-like and fixum probe, hokey?

Dear Specialist H. W. W.,
True true .. these mounts do collect oil that should be wiped off during
the Daily in order to cut down on deterioration of the rubber.
As for an oil-soaked mount, try this for size. Clean the rubber thoroughly
with mild soap and water. About 12 hours later eye the mount and if a film of
oil reappears on the idle chopper, it's oil-soaked.
'Course an oil-soaked, soft or cracked shock mount is not going to dampen out

-ELECTRIC BRAKE LOCK
When operating our M543 5-ton wrecker's crane or rear winch, we're sup-
posed to have the electric brake lock applied. Should the brake lock be used
when operating the wrecker's front winch?
SFC G. A. F.
Dear Sergeant G. A. f.,
The front winch usually is used alone only for recovering the wrecker itself.
You'd either be using the wheels for extra power or you'd want 'em rolling free,
so you wouldn't want the brakes on.
But if, for some reason, you're using the front winch alone for recovering
another vehicle, you should have the electric brake lock on.
Just about as important as when you should use the brake lock is when you
shouldn't and that's for ordinary parking. The lock keeps constant pressure
on the hydraulic brake system and, if held on for a long time, could result in a
bust-through in the lines. There's not much point in taking the risk when the
wrecker's got a mechanical parking brake meant just for ordinary parking.
O M49C TANK TRUCK .
HOW MUCH GROUNDING?
TM 10-1113 (Jul 65), para 48b(l) says the dispensing nozzle against the fuel
tank opening is enough of a bond when refueling tracked or wheeled vehicles
from a tank truck. "No other bonding or grounding is necessary."
So, is a bonding wire and clip on the nozzle a required part of the M49C
/2-ton tank truck's equipment when the wire's not used?
SSgt W. K.
Dear Sergeant W. K.,
First off, you do need a ground in addition to that bond.
AR 385-55 (Sep 65) says, in para 19i(2): "Tank trucks will
be firmly grounded prior to approaching the orifice of con-
tainer with the delivery nozzle of the tank truck."
About the nozzle bonding wire, yes, it's part of the M49C's
equipment, along with the filtering system, that makes the
M49C a dual-purpose tanker for refueling tracked and
wheeled vehicles and also for refueling aircraft.
TM 10-1101 (Jul 65), para 133, tells when the nozzle
bonding wire must be used for refueling aircraft.
The bonding wire comes as part of Nozzle, fuel dispensing,
FSN 4730-565-5181, in TM 9-2320-209-20P (Jan 65). If
your nozzle wire's missing, you can make one from a piece
of cable like's on the static grounding reel. Fasten one end
securely to the nozzle and put an electrical clip on the

JOLW SO WHAT'S TORQUING ABOUTT'TJ U
Anyway you turn it-torque is twist, the kind that produces rotation. It's
such a screwed-up force that it takes two kinds of measurements to peg it. It's
measured in ounces and pounds and inches and feet. Tuelve inch pounds make
a foot pound.
Torque equals force times distance. It's based on the law of the lever. Torque
is not tension, which has to do with pull.

They discovered that engine cylinder head clearances could be lost by over-
tightening head bolts. The result loss of compression, wear and tear on the

Take some applications. A bolt may be stronger than the parts it holds together.
If these parts happen to be aluminum or magnesium, over-tightening can pro-
duce real headaches. Light-weight metals can be squeezed out of shape and
distorted. If they're in the form of a casting, they can be cracked, or the threads
in 'em can be stripped. Then you'll find yourself drillin' and tappin' for sure.

Not only did the engineers find out that special twistin' is a must they noted
torque values as they designed the machines, and they passed these on to you
in the pub that goes along with your equipment.
The organizational maintenance pub may have a table with the standard
torque values, and special torque values may be called out in the text.
No mechanic worth his salt would tackle a job without his torque wrench and
the know-how of using it.
If you're usin' a regular torque handle without an attachment that adds to the
length of the wrench, you just torque to the value indicated in your pubs.
If you're using an extension that does add to the length of the wrench, though,
there's a little more involved, and you'll have to put on your thinking cap and
do a little figurin'.

Now just suppose that you're wrappin' up a job on your equipment, and you
come to a nut or a bolt that has to be torqued, but you can't get at it with a
regular socket. Let's say it requires a 6-in adapter on that torque wrench to reach
it. The pub says the nut is supposed to be torqued down to 65 foot-pounds. Fine!

So you apply slow steady pressure on that torque wrench handle till the dial
reads about 43 foot-pounds, and you've got it.
Before you torque any nuts or bolts, be sure the threads are in good shape.
Nuts and bolts have to be free running. A little oil on the threads will help
(when a torque table calls for it). If they aren't free running, you can't get an
USE THE RIGHT WRENCH
There're many different torque wrenches available. Just be sure you use the
one that has the right torque range for the job you have at hand.
The most common types are the bar or cam-type, and the flexible beam type.
You set the torque you want on the handle of the bar type, and tighten until
the wrench slips or "breaks". That's the signal that tells you that you've got
the right twist and to ease off on her.
The flexible beam types usually have a dial or a scale right on the handle, and
you tighten untilthe dial indicates the torque you want.
Some torque wrenches are designed for special jobs, like the T-shaped, pre-set
torque wrench in the aircraft general mechanic's tool kit. It's intended for tight-
ening hose clamps.

Even though it's called a dails log, you're required to make

column e, check both the DA 2404 used
for the before-during-after-operational
checks your daily inspection and
DA 2408-14, the Uncorrected Fault
Record, in the log.
Symbols to be used for faults you
find are listed, with definitions, on DA
2408 in the log and in para 3-4c(2)(j)
of TM 38-750. If there's a question
about which symbol to use for a fault,
ask your maintenance supervisor.
If your maintenance supervisor asks
you to make the entries on DA 2408-1
monthly, get the totals from the DA
2408-1 daily and make the entries as
shown below. Leave columns e, f and

EMPTY DECON HOLDER
When the situation allows (and local SOP says so) you can keep the M11
portable decon (FSN 4230-720-1618) stowed in the supply room, instead of hang-
ing on your equipment.
The decon's bracket, itself, natch, must be installed and kept in good order.
But, the empty container, its nitrogen cylinders and the DS-2 decon agent, can
sit safely in storage until needed.

^^fc^^ -^j.,^-<^ eRPP KEr.' !
An empty decon bracket, of course, needs a bit of special care. You gotta be
careful something else isn't hung on it, for one. And, you have to take care it's
not banged, busted or used as a foot stool.
The OK on leaving the decon in storage is in Change 2 (20 Dec 65) to TM
OTHIE DECON NEWS
The .change, which incidentally changes the -15 TM to an organizational
manual, also gives you a cold-weather caution. It says the decon's not effective
in temps below approximately -15 F.
It also OK's use of a three-strand-wire lead seal (like the kind used on some fire
extinguishers) in place of the two-strand-wire seal (FSN 5340-598-3433) listed
*fotbe decoa. on page 20 of the TM.
.s's'.rdthree-stmnd-wire seal is a non-stocked item, tho. So in addition to quot-
';iSN,05340-NSN, you'd best als quote the TM change, if you order the seal.

ALCOHOL AND DIESEL FUEL
Change I (Feb 65) to TM 9-207 has a caution saying that alcohol should not
be added to diesel fuel. This change and the short blurbs in PS 155 (page )
and PS 158 (page 10) on this no-alcohol bit were meant only for tactical vehicles
that're covered by ThM 9-207. Engineer type equipment is covered by TB Eng
347, and commercial vehicles are covered by speci6c manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Some tactical vehicles were made exempt by special teletype directives and
are not involved in the anti-alcohol caution. Before applying the no-alaohol-in-
diesel-fuel info. check real close and see whemer TM 9-207, Change 1 (Feb 63)
applies to the equipment you're winterizing.

TANK'S CBR FILTERS... TAKE 'EM OUT
In spite of everything some Joes get slap-happy with,water when they're
cleaning the inside of their tanks. When they do, they're putting their gas-
particulate filter unit out of commission.
Those units aren't waterproof and when water gets in, the filters become
saturated with water. When that happens, it would be like trying to breathe
through a wet sponge if you tried to breathe through the filter unit.
To make sure you don't ruin the filter units in your tank, take 'em out before
you do that cleaning job.
It's simple to do once you get the hang of
it. To remove the ABC-M8A2 units from the ... THE GROUND WIRE
M48-series tanks disconnect: :-. :- I
Then lift the filter unit out-and
lease it out until you're through with
that scrub job.
When )our tank's going into storage
)ou can save those filters if you'll take
them out of the tank. wrap them in
waterproof paper, and store them in a
dry place until you need them.
Getting new parts for your equipment for-free is just about like finding that
gold at the end of the rainbow.
It takes a little work to get to that gold, but not as much to get those for-free
parts if your equipment breaks down while it's still under the one-year warranty.
You shoot the word to the commodity command that provided the equipment
by sending them a DA Form 2407. Maybe the piece of equipment has faulty
materials in it, or maybe some of the parts have gone bad, then tell them on
Here're some of the commercial-type items covered by a one-year warranty:
Refrigeration equipment, ice making machines, water coolers, food cooking,
baking and warming equipment, power operated kitchen equipment, office ma-
chines, commercial appliances, industrial and household laundry equipment,
printing and duplicating equipment, heating and dehumidification equipment,
dishwashers and coffee urns.
Be sure to list make, model, serial number, contract number, and any other
info that might help identify it. And the sooner you send it the better so you
can get within that year's warranty.
Send the 2407 to the U.S. Army Mobility Equipment Center, ATTN: AMSME-
MAO, 4300 Goodfellow Blvd, St. Louis, Missouri 63120.
There's one way to make sure you're
getting the right bucket tooth for your

If you get one from supply that's the
wrong size (even though it has the right
FSN and Part No. on it), turn it in
and tell them you need one of the

You're right! That "60-milliampere"

The way it should've read was, "If your

should adjust the bias resistor (of your
TT-76 or TT-98) for a reading of 12.25
milliamps. If the LINE SELECTOR switch
is on "20," you should get a reading of
